The Argentine airline Flybondi has started issuing NFT tickets
The Argentine low-cost airline Flybondi initiated the Ticket 3.0 campaign, within which it began issuing tickets in the form of non-interchangeable tokens (NFT).
The airline said that this method "offers a more flexible travel experience." In turn, Flybondi will be able to reduce customer service costs and increase revenue through trading commissions.
The initiative was implemented through cooperation with TravelX, a blockchain platform for the sale of tokenized tickets based on the Algorand network. The service allows you to change the passenger's name yourself, transfer or sell so—called NFTickets.
"With this launch, we strive to have a positive impact on the aviation industry through innovation and the use of blockchain," said Flybondi CEO Mauricio Sana.
Airline customers can purchase digital tickets directly through the website for fiat, and TravelX will give them an NFT version. Tokens can also be bought for the USDC stablecoin through the Binance Pay payment service.
Recall that in December 2022, the Starbucks coffee chain launched a beta version of the NFT-based loyalty program in the Polygon network.
Later, the Spotify music service began testing the playlist service with access via NFT wallets.
